Do any of these statements resonate with you?
+ I feel unhappy or stuck
+ I think I have impostor syndrome
+ I struggle with speaking up, setting boundaries, and prioritizing my needs
+ I keep trying to change but always return to the same self-sabotaging behaviors
If any of these or similar statements ring true for you, the first thing I want you to know is that it's not your fault that you feel this way.
These feelings stem from your childhood, when your subconscious mind formed a negative Core Story that’s still shaping your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors to this day.
Your subconscious formed this story so that you could cope with and make sense of stressful, painful, or traumatic experiences. Your Core Story has caused you to view the people, events, and circumstances in your life through its filters.
Core stories come in many guises.
Here are some examples:
"I can’t really trust anyone."
"No-one will ever be there for me."
"Nothing good ever happens in my life."
Your Core Story is unique to you. Once it’s formed, it becomes your primary limiting belief about yourself throughout your life.
Everyone—even women who appear successful on the outside—has a subconscious Core Story.
However, although everyone has their own specific story, Core Stories create a widely shared symptom: They cause most people to feel that who they are is not enough.
As a result, your Core Story will ensure that you live a smaller version of yourself than you’re meant to live.
Let’s get specific on how core stories are formed
Your Core Story was formed before the age of six when your brainwaves operated predominantly as theta waves.
Theta waves cause a child’s subconscious mind to be open to large amounts of information that help the child learn and grow. However, this receptive state also makes children susceptible to creating a negative story about themselves.
In their attempt to make sense of stressful, painful, or traumatic experiences children often blame themselves for emotionally confounding situations.
Let me give you an example of how a Core Story might develop.
If your father was a violent alcoholic and your childhood was dominated by emotional disconnection and chaos, there’s a good chance that you developed a Core Story that not only held difficult memories about your dad but also about yourself.
In trying to make sense of this painful situation while wanting to stay connected to your father, as a little child you might have wondered why you weren't smart enough to figure out how to get him to stop drinking. Alternatively, you might have assumed that something was wrong with you because you didn’t have a “normal” father.
It’s easy to see how in this unhealthy family environment, either one of these limiting beliefs could have become your Core Story and lodged itself in your subconscious mind.
Unfortunately, the way Core Stories work is that once one becomes embedded in your subconscious it develops into the primary lens through which you view your whole life and from which other limiting beliefs arise.
It’s not hard to imagine how believing from early on that you’re not normal or smart would negatively impact your future health, your relationships, and your happiness.
How your Core Story negatively impacts every area of your life.
There’s a good chance that until now you haven’t even been aware of the insidious ways in which your Core Story exerts a hold over your life.
In fact, you may not even have been aware that you have a Core Story to begin with.
THAT'S NOT SURPRISING.
There was a time when I’d never heard of Core Stories either.
But you need to understand the ways in which your Core Story holds you back in life.
Your Core Story has likely made you…
+ Feel that you’re not enough just as you are
+ Be your own worst critic and to lack self-compassion
+ Struggle with speaking up for yourself and with setting boundaries
+ Feel exhausted from always putting others’ needs before your own
+ Feel unfulfilled in your job and in your relationship
+ Suffer from impostor syndrome
Although your Core Story has ensured that you’ve lived a smaller version of yourself than you were meant to live, it’s not the truth of who you are.
The truth of who you are is that you are good, whole, and worthy and that you are enough just as you are.
You deserve to believe this about yourself. You deserve to love yourself, to prioritize your needs, and to pursue your goals and dreams.
With my help, you can be free of the hold that your Core Story has over you.
You don’t have to allow this negative story to continue hijacking your happiness and self-esteem.
You can write a new, empowered story for yourself, one in which you thrive and feel comfortable in your own skin.
That’s why it’s so important that you identify and rewrite your Core Story.
HOW DO I KNOW THIS?
I myself released the hold that my Core Story long had over me. Moreover, as an Integrative Coach and Intuitive Counselor, I’ve devoted the past fifteen years to helping hundreds of women just like you identify and rewrite their Core Stories.
Rewriting their Core Stories enabled these women to prioritize themselves, to speak their truth, to pursue their dreams, and to transform their lives.
Intuitively identifying your unique Core Story is my superpower.
To help you heal and be your best self, I’ve woven over twenty years worth of knowledge, skills, techniques, resources, and practices into my Conquer Your Core Story System™.
During your first virtual 1:1 intensive session with me I’ll use my signature system to intuitively identify your Core Story.
I’ve spent over two decades honing this skill and can readily identify your Core Story, how it was formed, and how it has negatively impacted you.
Right from the outset, having me identify your Core Story ensures that you get to the root of what’s been holding you back and keeping you stuck. This alone can save you months and even years of very time-consuming traditional therapy.
Once I’ve identified your unique story, I’ll help you see, understand, process, and begin to release the hold that it has over you. Once you do that, I’ll help guide you to become the most healthy, joyful, and empowered version of yourself.
You deserve to feel whole and at peace with yourself.
IT'S YOUR BIRTHRIGHT TO:
♡ Experience fulfillment in your work
♡ Love yourself and know your worth
♡ Experience deeply fulfilling relationships
♡ Embrace your body and be your authentic self
♡ Feel empowered to pursue your dreams and to celebrate yourself
I remember a time when I didn’t feel any of these things…
Twenty years ago I suffered a full-on collapse.
I was utterly exhausted and anxiety-ridden. Until this time, I’d spent years abandoning my own needs while people-pleasing and prioritizing the needs of others. I tried many different methods and practices to try and change but I could never find the freedom and happiness I desired.
Ultimately, it was only by identifying and processing my unique Core Story that I was able to truly get at the root cause of why I never felt like I was enough.
Once I’d identified my own story, understood how it was formed, and processed it, I developed various means to release its hold over me.
This is what allowed me to stop repeating the same self-sabotaging patterns, to love myself, and to finally transform my life.
Of course, like any adult human being, I still face challenges. (For instance, both of my parents have Alzheimers.) Yet releasing the hold that my Core Story had over me has allowed me to feel more joyful and free than ever before.
After fifteen years of helping women find their own voice, I know that with my expert guidance you too can rewrite your subconscious Core Story and replace it with a new and life-affirming one.

"After just a handful of sessions with Susan, I have made more breakthroughs, uncovered more core beliefs, and gained more understanding of habits and thought patterns helping me to reclaim my power and to heal."
I’ve found working with Susan for two months more insightful and helpful than working with a “traditional therapist” for over a year. Susan’s honest, yet gentle, intuitive approach creates an incredibly safe environment where I can feel safe and allow myself to be vulnerable.
With her guidance, and reminders to stay open and use love as my compass, I am learning to heal all the parts of me that need to be healed so that I can live my most authentic, happy life. I am incredibly grateful for being led to Susan -- working with her feels like the warm blanket the little girl in me has been searching a lifetime for. Thank you Susan for your loving kindness! I will be eternally grateful!

She has been a gentle, compassionate, wise, honest and bold healing Presence in my life. I have deep gratitude for Susan and the impact she's had on my life over the years.
It's clear to me that to be able to be present for others in this capacity, she's done her own work and can get in the trenches with those that are ready to heal and move forward in a new and empowered way. I highly recommend working with Susan.
"Susan has been able to help me tap into my core stories and take them on in a healthy and impactful way."

I felt like I was where I was supposed to be. Susan's kindness, compassion and emanating warmth make it easy to express whatever is on my mind and heart. No matter how down I may feel before my session, I always leave feeling relieved and hopeful.
Since beginning to work with Susan, I can feel changes in myself, especially in my ability to love and forgive myself - what a gift! Thank you, Susan!
"I started with Susan looking for some assistance in dealing with my grief from my husband’s death over two years ago."
I’ve had a lot of loss in my life and I was also aware of a lot of baggage that I carried from my childhood. Susan has helped me to work through issues that I was aware of and had been working on all my life and issues that I wasn’t even aware of.
Between her kindness, compassion, and guidance, I am feeling so much better! I am happier, lighter, and at peace – a place I haven’t been in a very long time. She has been a tremendous help in adjusting to this new chapter of my life without my husband. I finally feel like I am moving forward again.
